Nissan has established a research center in the heart of Silicon Valley. Company leaders say the plan to partner with other companies to research and develop the best and most advanced technology possible.
Carla Bailo said that Silicon Valley is where everything is happening so that is where Nissan needs to be. There is a lot of intelligence that resides in Silicon Valley.
The new facility is a part of Nissan’s global plan to expand research and development outside of Japan into key local markets. The team in Silicon Valley will work with the team in Japan who is working on developing autonomous driving vehicles, or a car that can drive itself.
Researchers will also look for ways to connect the car with the internet, existing infrastructure, and other self-driving cars. Nissan will also go further into researching the Human Machine Interface so that autonomous cars are connected and better interact with people.
